Answers to the Common Questions About Dental Implants
What You Need to Know About Dental Implants
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that mimic the look, feel and function of real teeth. Implants can restore almost 100% of jaw function, allowing you to eat what you want while looking completely natural and attractive. What’s more, we have a team of implant specialists who can perform extractions, place implants and mill custom restoration pieces in office.
What is the success rate of dental implant surgery?
When placed by our experienced implant specialists, we have a 95% success rate. We take every step to prepare your jaw to accept the implants before surgery even begins.
What is the typical dental implant cost?
The cost of dental implants varies from each patient depending on their needs. During a free implant consultation, we will look at the number of teeth that need to be replaced, how much jaw bone is present, if any tooth extractions are required, and if any infection needs to be cleansed.
How many teeth can be replaced with dental implants?
We have dental implant solutions that can help replace single, multiple and even full-arch tooth loss. For full-arch tooth loss we offer implant supported dentures, All-on-4® and the Done in One™ solutions.
Do I qualify for dental implants?
If you are missing any teeth, you are likely a candidate to receive dental implants in Williston Park, NY. We will evaluate your health to ensure you are in good overall health and be free of any gum disease or infection.
Why does my jaw bone matter?
Your jaw bone is what supports the dental implant, holding it firmly in place and ensuring it lasts you for years to come. If you are lacking supporting bone we can perform bone grafting or sinus lift procedures to rebuild bone in your jaw.
Does the surgery hurt
Having dental implant surgery is generally not painful thanks to the use of sedation dentistry. We have doctors who are certified to administer IV sedation if it’s needed for the ultimate in soothing, pain-free treatment.
What is the dental implant process?
Our team utilizes the most state-of-the-art technology and procedural techniques when placing and restoring dental implants. We have created a guideline on what to expect with dental implants that includes everything from planning to healing.
Can I have an extraction and implant placed at the same time?
In many situations we can remove a tooth, or multiple teeth, and place an implant at the same time. Ask us about our All-on-4 full arch dental implant solution!
Where does the surgery take place?
All of our offices are designed to handle implant surgeries. We can perform single, multiple and full arch surgery in office, along with advanced IV sedation.
Will there be complications?
When placing dental implants, our dentists rarely run into complications. As a team of experienced doctors, we have years of training to handle even the most complex cases. If you notice any complications after surgery such as pain, bleeding or you can see any part of the dental implant post, you may require treatment for peri-implantitis.
